Hockey and soccer and swimming OH MY!

We had a BUSY weekend!

Friday night, Boy Oneder and his team played the first game of the Scarborough tournament. Well, I use the term "played" lightly, as they really didn't play well at all. When all was said and done, we lost 3-0.

Saturday morning greeted us with a big snow storm. It was clowing like crazy and the roads were REALLY slippery.

Our craziness began with Middleman's soccer game, which Hubster took him to. A 9-1 loss was a really hard pill to swallow.

Next, at 9:30, I took Threepeat to his swimming lesson. He did REALLY well, jumping into the water all by himself...TWICE! Yay Threepeat!

We headed home to meet the rest of the fam and then popped in the van for a trip back to Scarborough for Boy Oneder's second game of the tourney, which began at 12:00. 2-0 win. The played a GREAT game and deserved that win! It was great to see Kathy, Bruno and their girls! Thanks for coming out to support the boys! Luckily, they chose the one good game to watch!

Threepeat, Middleman, MIL and I left Hubster and Boy Oneder in Scarborough and headed back to Woodbridge for Middleman's hockey practice at 3:15. Hubster and Boy Oneder couldn't come back with us because they wouldn't be back in time to get ready for Boy Oneder's next game, which was at 5:15.

MIL didn't come to Boy Oneder's 5:15 game because we were supposed to meet friends for dinner after the game, so Middleman, Threepeat and I dropped her off at SIL's house and headed back to Scarborough.

Boy Oneder's game was played at the home arena that I used to play ringette at. The hours and hours that my family and I spent at that arena are immeasurable. Let's just say I lived there for about 10 years. Walking back into that arena on Saturday night brought back a FLOOD of memories. Nothing had changed. I felt right at home. I looked over at the home bench and had to bit my lip to stop myself from crying because I saw my Dad there, standing up high, yelling at us to "Skate!" or "Check!" My Dad was my coach all my life and ringette (and Malvern Arena) will always be synonymous with my Daddy. I hope he was there to watch his grandson play at his arena.

Sadly, the Devils played another TERRIBLE game, and we were shut out 3-0. It was so frustrating to watch, I tell you. That knocked us out of the tournament and we all headed out, sad and disheartened.

Next, we were one our way to a restaurant, about halfway home, to meet up with some of Hubster's old high school pals and their families. When we were a few minutes from the restaurant, we decided we were just too tired to socialize and decided to head home to Chilli's, to have a quick bite and get into bed.

Chilli's was a disaster...so overcrowded and such slow service. The food was mediocre and it was so loud, you couldn't have a conversation. I think the fact that we were all so exhausted made it worse. I'm really glad we chose not to go out with our friends...it would have put Threepeat over the edge I think.

We got home at 10:00 and I don't think any of us were awake after 10:15.

Sunday morning began with Boy Oneder's houseleague hockey game at 10:25, which ended up being another loss, with a fight between two boys at the end. I took Boy Oneder so that everyone else could rest.

1:00 was our next appointment...Middleman's houseleauge hockey game. The end results was a 3-3 tie, but they really and truly deserved the win. The refs were really, REALLY bad, at one point, calling a penalty on the opposing team and then forgetting which number they called the penalty on. It was extremely frustrating, but the kids played REALLY well and Middleman got the "Player of the Game" award. YAY Middleman!

We were back home by about 2:45 and I headed out to get some groceries while Hubster took the boys to Toys R Us to spend the gift cards that were burning holes in their pockets. I made a great roast beef dinner, which everyone devoured and we were all in bed by 9:30.

This morning came WAY too early and we are back in the rat race for another week. I'm feeling a bit crappy, and hoping it's just exhaustion and not a bug.

Phew...how was YOUR weekend? Pin It
